Wine and Dine in Sussex

We opened our fine dining Tasting Room Restaurant in summer 2018 when we launched the first vintages of our English Sparkling wines. Since then, we are proud to have been featured in the Michelin Guide. Our goal is to provide Sussex with a gastronomical treasure, serving authentic British cuisine that pairs perfectly with our Sussex Sparkling wines.
